In principle, I retired on 23 Oct. 2014, but in reality not a lot changed. I am still teaching, speaking around the world, and writing. But we did have a nice party.

Some people in the Dept. asked a number of my current and former students, postdocs, and colleagues near and far to describe me in one word and also to give an extended description in 30 seconds. These video clips were assembled and put on YouTube:
